**Given ongoing COVID restrictions, we are currently not renting the indoor spaces described below through at least summer 2021. As described below, kitchen and restroom access as well as access to indoor prep spaces will continue to be available.** This space is the upper level of a two level garden courtyard in the heart of the city. While often rented in conjunction with several of our inside historic rooms for parties, weddings and meetings, it may also be reserved separately. The two levels of the garden may also be rented together for the same event, but given their proximity, we will not schedule two separate events at the same time. These gardens offer a private and intimate location for your event in the heart of the city. They are perfect for smaller receptions and parties, photo shoots and filming, as well as an outdoor component for events primarily using these indoor spaces. Tenting or rental of a suitable indoor space (at an additional cost) is required, unless otherwise discussed, to avoid inclement weather. Indoor space, other than restroom access, is not included with your booking unless specifically rented. Kitchen access is available at an additional cost.

Amal M. booked an engagement party for 38 people
Gorgeous space, I enjoyed having my engagement dinner here. The accommodations were lovely, the kitchenette was a lovely perk. Such a perfect summer/spring space. Their team was so sweet & communicating was clear & quick. I highly recommend this venue!
Robyn M. booked a bat mitzvah party for 100 people
We hosted a wonderful service and reception for 100 people using all the outdoor courtyard space. The setting is beautiful and the flow worked perfectly. Planning during COVID was challenging as requirements changed frequently, but Brian was flexible and available to work out several options. The venue is new and working out a few kinks (ie, they could provide a bit more staffing and help day-of, and the grass should have been mowed), but with a bit more experience under their belts, this venue is bound to be a huge success and we feel very fortunate to have found this secret gem.
Iris Z. booked an event for 18 people
The space was beautiful! Booking was slightly complicated because the pandemic has been unpredictable but in the end, the venue was a great place.
Donnarae W. booked a first birthday for 15 people
Great experience! Brian was incredibly helpful with coordinating in advance, and Tom was wonderful the day-of. The space is absolutely beautiful, and we had everything we needed. Would love to host other events here in the future.

Sulma F. booked a proposing for 15 people
Had a great experience with Brian and Tom. Brian was so helpful from day one with any questions I had even before the event. Everything was organized and the garden was perfect! He took the time to show us all 3 gardens and made sure we had the best one for our event! Tom was helpful the day of the event with getting us chairs and tables and was always available at the front Incase we needed anything! Brian and Tom thank you so much!
Meka O. booked a photo shoot for 4 people
Brian was very responsive to any questions or concerns I had about the space & weather issues. He was a bit impractical as it related to contract tracing information & wearing masks (for me & fiancee taking pics) inside an empty building during a photo shoot. His nervous energy was a bit annoying at times but understandable considering we're in the middle of a pandemic. It did not ruin the mood or energy of our engagement pics. My photographer (Chip Dizard) & his assistant were amazing! Space was as described and Brian was gracious enough to allow us to use indoor space due to weather (cold & rainy). Overall I gave Brian and the space a 5 and would reiterate this DC space is a place to take fabulous pics for any occasion!
Erika M. booked an engagement party for 30 people
This place had everything we needed to make our engagement party special. It was a bit of a hassle trying to find caterers that met all of the requirements of the venue, but Brian was helpful every step of the way. Would 100% recommend!
